Watch George Ezra Play ‘Budapest’ at KROQ’s Red Bull Sound Space


George Ezra KROQBritish singer/songwriter George Ezra recently performed a few songs at the Red Bull Sound Stage for Los Angeles’ KROQ, a set that included the hit “Budapest” from 2014′s Wanted on Voyage.

Armed with just an acoustic guitar, Ezra’s strong voice delivered the rumbling song with all the depth and passion for which he’s become known. Ezra also engaged the crowd during the part that featured a guitar solo in the plugged-in version, asking if the audience could just imagine it.

“Budapest” was one of Ezra’s breakout hits, as it reached No. 3 on the U.K. Singles chart, No. 2 on Billboard‘s Hot Rock Songs chart, and No. 1 in Austria and New Zealand.

You can check out Ezra in action below and click here for his upcoming tour dates.

Fall Out Boy Collab with Thomas Rhett at CMA Awards Show


The 49th Annual CMA Awards show aired on Wednesday night, and it featured some outstanding performances including a unique pairing between alt-rockers Fall Out Boy and country R&B newcomer Thomas Rhett.

The artists teamed for a mashup of FOB’s hit “Uma Thurman” and Rhett’s funky single “Crash and Burn,” complete with backup dancers, which we are guessing marked a rare occurrence for a country awards show.

Watch the clip below, featuring Fall Out Boy singer Patrick Stump on his Gretsch signature model.
